Do you often wish for change within yourSelf, and/or in the world?

Do you yearn for connection, inner peace, and to feel more empowered?

Do you feel, at times, as if nothing makes sense?

If reading these questions stirs a primal restlessness within you, consider this an invitation to,“Walk a path of ancestral wisdom in the modern world,” that you might find a better way through deeper relationships to both the Earth, and unseen realms.

The name of the path to which you are lovingly invited is The Pachakuti Mesa Tradition: Cross-Cultural Shamanic Arts for Personal and Planetary Renewal. The steps on this path are a Five-Part Apprenticeship Series, led by Pachakuti Mesa Tradition (PMT) Teachers and Lineage Carriers who have been sanctioned by the originator of the PMT, don Oscar Miro-Quesada.

As is explained by The Heart of the Healer (THOTH), the online home for the PMT, this is a rich and evolving practice of inner and outer activities that restore balance and harmony to our relationships with All That Is. The ancient Peruvian teachings and wisdom apply brilliantly to the challenges of the present day. Profound initiations, self-exploration, and personal growth experiences abound as the student/seeker completes each part of the series. While there may not be specific “answers” to the questions we often ponder about life, there is a “way” for those who desire to be of service to themselves, their families, their community, and Mother Earth to become clearer, and feel more whole. As don Oscar says:

“When we surrender the need to figure it all out, and cultivate the ability to let it all in, then our earth walk becomes a sacred dance of healing service on the planet. More than the world needs saving, it needs loving.”

The PMT Apprenticeship Series is an extraordinary Soul Journey, and an awakening of Self. There is no prerequisite for Part 1 of this five-part apprenticeship series; all subsequent classes require completion of the preceding classes, under the guidance of a PMT Sanctioned Teacher. The classes are as follows:

Part 1:  The Call to Heal (Releasing the Past):  This apprenticeship workshop initiates participants into the Pachakuti Mesa, a powerful and sacred altar. Students learn how to create their own mesas and work with them for self-empowerment, transformation, and helping others. Through shamanic journey and visionary states of consciousness, participants will explore the three worlds of the Andean cosmovision, sacred reciprocity with all that is, the core ingredients of ceremonial mastery, sacred sound and ritual language, healing and curanderismo, and the inner world of the ukhupacha.

Part 2:  A Balance of Power (Transforming the Present):  During this workshop intensive, participants will apprentice in the center of the mesa, traditional Peruvian healing practices, and the kaypacha, the middle world. They will explore the kaypacha’s elemental matrix and magico-spiritual power, and learn about the moon’s presence in the middle world, mapping the cosmos on Earth, and celestial death and rebirth.

Part 3:  The Condor’s Quest (Creating the Future):  This workshop is an initiation into the paqokuna, the Andean Shaman/Priesthood mystical path, the lineage of the sacred mountains, and the five virtues of the mesa. Participants will also journey to and experience the hanaqpacha, the upper world beyond the physical, work with the unseen world there and deepen their connection to their own spiritual resources.

Part 4:  The Hummingbird’s Ascent (Living the Mystery):  In this apprenticeship workshop students will experience the upper world and learn about its lightning bolt of mystical illumination and the flow of kamasqa, the power of Creation. They will work with the elements, the forces of the universe, the body of Mother Earth, and sacred healing objects. In sacred reciprocity participants will create despachos to honor Mother Earth, the sacred mountains, the elements, the unseen world, and prepare for a paqowachu, a sacred pilgrimage.

Part 5:  The Shamanic Self (Serving the Earth):  This workshop deepens participants’ experiences of soul and spirit through ritual process, including the spiritual creation, activation and care of an apacheta. Students will work with the power of creation in the kaypacha or middle world, dimensionality and time, as well as with the three suns, and the hampikamayoq process (ancient breathing techniques for physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being and transformation). Participants will be further empowered by evoking both seen and unseen sources of cosmic awareness within their mesa, sacred objects and own being, and initiation into the lineage of this revered tradition.
